High Hopes Phone Snafu!!!

Just wanted to let all our customers know that there has been a it of a telephone snafu over at High Hopes this weekend! They were having their phone services upgraded, but instead of making it better, the phone company decided to shut the business line down!! That's right!! Thankfully since it's their fault, they aren't charging to turn it back on.....BUT they can't flip the switch until Thursday sometime!!! Can you believe that???

Anyhooooo, Tina would like me to share her personal phone number for anyone who needs to get a hold of them before the business line gets back up. So if you have an urgent stamping issue that needs their attention, feel free to call their home number at (519) 481-0812. After Thursday, it will be business as usual!!
